Personal profile

Research Interests

-My research interests are "enzymes" and "drug discovery".
 1. Currently at the WWIEM, my focus is on protein engineering for medical purposes
2. Past experiences and main achievements:
  • 1990-1998: B.Sc. and M.Sc in microbiology (applied, industrial, food, environmental and medical); M.Sc. thesis: microbial bioremediation of heavy metals
  • 1999-2006: Biochemistry and microbiology research assistant
  • 2006-2011:PhD in biotechnology (enzyme engineering and bio/chemistry); PhD thesis: the creation of highly in vivo soluble mutants, the study of the mechanism of functional expression and characterization of a lyase from a new resource
  • 2012-2015: Post-doc research in enzyme discovery for biocatalysis: discovery of a new lyase enzyme from a millipede; a new primary as well as 3D structure
